I use Skysafari Pro, Stellarium and various other apps to plan observing, but I cannot find a simple way to determine when is best time/day/month to view/image an object taking into account Altitude, Darkness (Astro Twilight end/moon phase), Sky Position and Latitude.
For example, I want to image (with my new S50) the Eagle Nebula, but it is pretty low right now in the south. I want to find when in the year it will be optimum/possible to image so I don't waste time trying to image 10 degree over the horizon. And, of course if that is the best it will ever be no matter how patient I am, then I'd try to image it now.
To me, this seems like basic information any astronomer would want to know so I am surprised it's not a function on SS or an app or website to do it. It would surely be pretty easy for SS to add this.
Find best time of a day to look at an object is simple, yet there is no easy way on any app Ive found to do the above. I can graph the object in SkySafari which technically has all the information, but it gets unusable/very time consuming to try to find the answer.
Has anyone found anything that works well.
